I'm staying out of the Kevin Gregg - Theo Epstein pissing match. There's far too much frustration and over reaction on EVERYONE'S part. Of course, that's going to limit the links.
From Comcast SportsNet
- Theo Epstein says speculation about Joe Girardi joining the Cubs is disrespectful.
- That said, David Kaplan thinks the Cubs could make a change in the manager's office.

From the Chicago Tribune
- The Cubs' offense is going to have to improve from within.
